Royal Rumble is over with and we’re on the road to WrestleMania! Each of the two brands gets their own stop on the way and for Raw, they get WWE Elimination Chamber 2018. The concept of the Elimination Chamber match started back in Survivor Series 2002, won by Shawn Michaels. Since then, it would be used sparingly, eventually being part of No Way Out until getting its own PPV back in 2010. After that, it became an annual event, albeit losing steam halfway through the decade to the point that the 2015 edition was just kind of thrown together. After the Brand Split happened, the show has returned, helping sculpt the card for WrestleMania.
This will be a special installment, as we’ll be getting the first women’s Elimination Chamber match.
We’ll update this with the WWE Elimination Chamber 2018 results throughout the night!
WWE ELIMINATION CHAMBER 2018 RESULTS
THE CLUB VS. THE MIZTOURAGE
Results: Gallows knocked Dallas off the apron with a superkick, then used another superkick to catch Axel off the ropes. Gallows and Anderson then finished Axel off with the Magic Killer to win. In a backstage interview, the Revival acted disgusted at the Club’s strategies as a tag team.

Bayley then attacked Mickie and defeated her with the Belly-to-Bayley. Alexa Bliss entered last, but with Sasha and Bayley working together against her. Sasha turned on Bayley and shoved her off the top of a pod. As time passed, Bayley seemed to have Sasha where she wanted her with a Belly-to-Bayley, but Alexa grabbed Bayley and rolled her up. That left Alexa vs. Sasha and although Sasha caught her with the Banks Statement, it was outside of the ring and didn’t count. Sasha tried to climb up to a pod, but Alexa attacked her and finished her off with a DDT off the top rope.
Alexa retained. After the match, she cut an emotional promo as the crowd chanted, “YOU DESERVE IT!” She said her victory was for every little girl in the audience.

She went over how she beat the odds and proved to be the one true goddess in WWE.

RONDA ROUSEY CONTRACT SIGNING
Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Kurt Angle were in the ring to welcome Ronda to the ring. Ronda’s initial promo was cringeworthy and mumbled, but otherwise, Triple H and Stephanie talked up her accomplishments and how she’d get a match at WrestleMania. Before Ronda could sign, Angle talked up how Triple H and Stephanie badmouthed her a bunch over their WrestleMania 31 incident and hoped to control her. Triple H then led Angle out of the ring. Triple H tried to break up a staredown between Ronda and Stephanie, but Ronda slammed Triple H through a table instead. Stephanie slapped Ronda, leading to an angry stare and a chant from the crowd of, “YOU FUCKED UP!” Stephanie ran off in fear while Ronda signed the contract.
THE MIZ VS. SETH ROLLINS VS. ROMAN REIGNS VS. JOHN CENA VS. BRAUN STROWMAN VS. ELIAS VS. FINN BALOR
Elimination Chamber for a shot at the Universal Championship at WrestleMania
Results: In progress
Miz, Rollins, and Balor started it off. Cena came in at #4, Roman at #5, and Braun at #6. Braun completely dominated the ring, culminating in powerslamming and pinning the Miz. Elias was #7 and refused to enter. The other four teamed up on Braun, but despite hitting a Shield Bomb and hitting all their finishers, they couldn’t get the job done. Elias tried to lift Braun on his shoulders, but that failed, so Braun crushed him with a running powerslam and pinned him. With another attempt to team-up on Braun, Braun caught Cena off the top rope and turned it into a running powerslam to eliminate him. Balor hit the Coup de Grace on Roman, but before he could go for the pin, Braun grabbed him and took him out with a running powerslam. Roman and Rollins teamed up on Braun, but a Curb Stomp was reversed into a powerslam, eliminating Rollins. Roman finally defeated Braun with two spears in a row.
Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania confirmed. After the match, Braun hit multiple running powerslams on Roman to the cheers of the crowd.
